[ laughter ] >> so, do you think that the president will not name her anyway? is she not worth the fight? >> i think she's worth the fight. i hope he does nominate her. i hope he does not back down to this no one sense. this is fal

jerry brown is doing to get additional revenue to eliminate the need to cut education spending. he is increasing the tax rate on the wealthy. increasing sales tax and getting $6 billion a year of extra revenue in the state. the public voted for it. >> the public understands that. that's why the public re-elected president obama. that's been his exact position, and i'm proud of the residents here who voted for that because our children deserve that. they deserve to be taken care of in terms of not being on the chopping block. >> eliot: i think jerry brown defense a fair bit of credit. he was taking a lot of swings and arrows headed his way. he said if you don't go for this, i have to cut your education. and the rest of the nation should look at california. you are big. the set the example often. the public said this makes sense. the president can say to john boehner, the public supports it. >> governor brown led the charge on this. he was steady, focused and he did not relent, and did not allow anyone to push him back on that. we won and you're right. i think the country is ready fo
brown and his candid take on key measures. and now we'll get the back story why ad gurus rich silverstein and jeff goodby just don't like politics. we'll start with chris lehans. this is a predictable outcome and in other respects overoverwhelmoverwhelming gains in the u.s. senate, drug policies in states, gay marriage in ways we haven't seen in the past. what is your perspective of what is going on in this country. >> people will look back at this a tipping point of election in our country. what people talk about the demographic turnout and the importance of latino votes and women. a lot of people spent a lot of time on latinos, which is important in how it plays you had in politics, but i'm fascinateed by not only of the fact that they made, made the millennials in our they look at the issues. in some ways they're the type of data that you see from the greatest generation. they carry nor mustily about the greater issues and the world around them, and a little bit less of what's in it for me and more what's in it for us. the results that you're seeing on some of the progressi
. an then legendary willie brown with key measures that move the vote. and now that the onslaught of the elections is finally oh over let's get the back story of why jeff goodby does in the like politics. but first we have chris lehans. the elections were predictable but in some respects unpredictable. there were gains in women in the senate, the drug challenge and gay marriage in ways we haven't seen in the past. a when is your sense on this election in history. >> i think people will look back at this election as a tipping point in the country. what you saw was a demographic turnout in terms of the latino vote the women and a lot of people spend at least time on latino, which is arguably arguably important in how it turns out politics but the millennial and how they voted. the millennials are folks in this country in terms of how they look at issues. in some ways they're a lot like the type of data you wouldn't have seen from the greatest generation. they carry another care enormously about the world around them, rather than what is in it for me, it's what is in it for us. it reflects the fact t
a massachusetts senate seat for scott brown. so it could all be a way of getting back another republican in the united states senate. don't know for sure. just sayin'. all right. we'll look into that and a whole lot more here but first standing by with today's current news update, lisa ferguson in los angeles. hi lisa. take it away. >> hey bill, thanks. good morning everyone. as president heads to meet with leaders of the business world this afternoon politico is reporting that john boehner and his leadership team are making plans to meet with some of these very same executives. now the irony here is that obama and boehner still have no plans to meet themselves face-to-face. the two did meet before congress' thanksgiving recess along with the other two three members of the house and the senate. they had plans to meet again this week but still nothing is scheduled. it is not a great sign and shows that the two groups are practically incapable of working together. the last time obama and boehner tried putting together a big
. i covered the whitman and brown campaign and whitman outspent jerry brown by six times and she lost really bad. by 6 points at least. and that -- in california, it never matters if there are billionaires money doesn't matter in california elections but in national elections it always has. the traditional wisdom has now been bucked by this particular election. >> eliot: right. i think of the national spending patterns as well. you saw the sheldon adelsons. it is not clear to me all of his money, he backed a sequence of losers. somebody ed he was 0-9, all of the money simply bounced off of voter's consciousness. what will those funders say next time? >> you would have to ask sheldon adelson what he thought? i did meet some of these characters at some of the conventions. had a nice long talk with foster friess but what i think they're getting is somebody to listen to them, a place to put their money where their mouth is and where their values are. they may value that more than winning any particular race. >> eliot:
operations. >> i'm joined by oh professor tricia rose of brown university and buzzfeed's own michael hastings. unfortunately we have to start with somebody as somber as these reports. it seems this is what we've been hearing out of israel, out of the mideast forever. it if starts it stops, it starts it stops. >> i've done stories on this out of libya and they were fearing this fearing roberts and military excursions. >> this is someone reporting from the middle of an attack for for al-jazeera. >> we've been intercepted by the iron dome. you can probably hear the explosion. we should be-- [ explosion ] >> there is another one there. you can probably see it. three--we don't know whether they're being intercepted or not. [ sirens ] at this stage. yes, they are. >> of course, this report is coming from israel. the iron dome intercepted that. you know, how do we as a people, tricia, see this again and respond to it from afar, and what--i'm just so numb to it, do you know what i mean? >> it's a horrible situation. the many thing is we need more information than the mainstream news media is giving
can be reborn. i'm really thankful for a dinner where the turkey skin is golden brown encasing the juices from a tender bird basted with butter and garlic salt and of course i'm also grateful to be able to share that dinner with my incredible family, my soulful husband, dan, and those fascinating and unique human beings who are my children, kate and cece and jack, all of whom i love with every fiber of my being. i'm thankful to be blessed with a mind-blowingly scrappy team here in "the war room." they put in long hours and heart and soul to create this and thoughtful show for you, and i'm grateful for you, dear viewers who found us on this upstart network and have stuck with us as we continue to grow. for everyone who has shared this journey, participated in this wonderful, infuriating, perplexing and inspiring story that is democracy. thank you. i'm grateful this is a story that will not end. so happy alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know
'll say this about the governor jerry brown. there was a position in 2008 that would have transformed the whole prison system, proposition 5. everything was based upon all the expert recommendations. but the prison guard union key factors, he wanted them lined up for his gubernatorial run. >> he's planning a determinant sentencing law which put us on the path of some of the overpopulation experiences. >> right now mark leno has been pushing a bill in sacramento that would reduce the penalty. and it would reduce the amount of people behind bars. but it's tough going in sacramento why? people have the third that it's the third rail, the thing that they can't touch. it's moving. definitely different from ten years ago and definitely different from 20 years ago. >> i think i've gone so far without saying what i'm going to say, count me as a support center doing the right thing and move beyond this pal try limited debate on marijuana and not just supply myself with the warm embrace of the medical marijuana. i'll put myself on the limb on the issue of reconciling that it needs to be regulat
to the new coalition of barbies browns, young people angry liberals. we are spending over $2 million in pennsylvania on television. we would not be spending it unless we sensed an opportunity there. >> north carolina, florida virginia? >> all three of those states, plus indiana are comfortably out of the obama column where they were in 2008 and into the republican column. i think romney gets 279 to 281. >> i think this is premature. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled. >> no, i don't. we've got to be careful about calling things when we have 991 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote to count. >> karl rove said we should figure out what the deal is. >> the doubt that karl rove has attempted to place. >> you are comfortable with the call in ho i how? >> he's angry and pushing his finger in the air and looking sideways and looking mean and angry. >> that's awkward. >> they irradiated him as a rich guy who didn't care about ordinary people when he was on the side of ugly stuff about bain capitol and being a rich guy and i think he appropriately responded.
of sara fisher who went to brown mackey college and they lied about her job's success. >> i feel like i've been lied to and i am angry about it. >> fisher said she got sucked in by a recruiter for brown mackey. >> they said i would be able to get a better job and make $35,000 to $40,000 a year. >> but an exclusive look at internal company documents which show that they're still counting her $16,000 a year job as a success. >> i work at walmart in customer service. they're lying. >> i should note that "abc news" did contact them and they said these claims are without merit. >> cenk: they said that. i didn't see that coming. >> we'll see how this lawsuit plays out. -for-profit colleges have faced criticism especially by the obama administration because of this deceptive recruiting. >> cenk: and i'm waiting for the day when the company goes, oh, they're suing us? look at that, you got us. but that last was instructive. people say i don't want to make $16,000. wouldn't it be great to have a decent job that paid me $30,000 to $40,000. they're not asking for a lot. the kind of job that you sh
kerry because they want that seat to open up in the senate to put scott brown in there, as well. >> cenk: that's a great point that's why they call him epic. >> i hadn't thought of that, it was a great point. all of a sudden, the next day we see this on another network. >> now that there's aningling of a chance that a is not seat might open up in massachusetts for scott brown to run for guess who's doing all of the dirty work to make sure that senate seat opens up? tadaa. >> are you going to sue her? >> she actually called and said can i go for it and i said yes. joe biden went to costco today. really, one of my favorite political stories of the year. went in, had his cart and there's great pictures of biden here going through. he bought cookies children's books, a big apple pie fire logs. how does he need fire logs, isn't somebody getting him the fire logs. the favorite part, though, he didn't purchase a set of tires when asked, he said man, i don't drive anymore. >> cenk: my understanding is he takes am tram from time to time. i heard that he got applause. >> he got huge applause. it w
. says john kerry and state put scott brown in the senate. just a thought. >> what? >> doesn't necessarily put him in the senate but he would probably run for that seat. >> we were making this point on the show yesterday and some listeners agreed with john fuglesang who said if john kerry is not in the senate anymore scott brown will run for that seat. >> he'll run for it but that doesn't mean that scott brown necessarily wins. barney frank could win. well, all right. i see the point. let's get a couple more callers. patty from seattle. you're on the "bill press show." good morning. hello, patty. all right. >> no patty from seattle. >> charles from tampa, florida. charles, good morning. you're on the "bill press show" we hope. >> caller: good morning. how you doing today? >> good. good to hear your voice. >> great to hear yours. on the benghazi thing with the c.i.a. and them doing the investigation. if it was a republican in office you guys would be harping all over it. what we need to find out is why
that they want scott brown back in the senate. they don't want susan rice to be secretary of state. you know what they want to be secretary of state? john kerry. and we know that you know, this is from anastacia who writes this. these two men are trying to get scott brown back in the senate and trashing susan rice to get kerry as secretary of state. i could not agree more, ans at a sha. the liberals are all afraid if you make john kerry john kerry secretary of state scott brown he's sitting there in his truck in massachusetts, he's got a big fund raising apparatus he's ready to campaign. he has the ground organization ready. and he will just try to snatch up john kerry's seat. you know what? the folks in massachusetts might go ahead and vote for him just to watch him and elizabeth warren have to be colleagues together after their ugly campaign. voters have done much sillier things. i was in california when austrian weightlifter got to be governor. i think that's a really good point. i think you're seeing them doing
kaine and sherrod brown would have to look for a new job. he got nothing right! >> you can be bad at calling stuff but to be that blind. >> bill: what's on twitter? >> we're tweeting at bp show. you talked about karl rove. you talked about all of the money, he's some explaining to do. blue rabbit said we should send shirts to the koch brothers saying i paid millions for an election and all i got was this lousy t-shirt. >> bill: i like that. >> we were just talking about the breakdown of -- >> bill: the "the obama hate machine" ran out of gas. >> send him a couple of copies of the book maybe. you were talking about how people voted for obama. chuck on twitter says latinos deported romney and women shut that whole thing down by voting for obama. >> bill: i like that. >> we're tweeting at bp show. find us there. >> bill: melissa is in pulaski, virginia. >> caller: hello, how are you? >> bill: i'm fine. what's your take on all of this? >> caller: it is ironic. i was looking at today, all of the different groups, th
, is the famous brown-warren race. there is elizabeth warren with a sizable lead. that's real clear politics, a combination of the polls more than likely to be true. she's over 50% there and has over 3.5 points or exactly 3.5 points on scott brown. then you go to missouri where we had todd akin and he used to be leading but no more. latest poll by public policy polling has him down by 4 points. democratic claire mccaskill leading there. in indiana returned hour dock made outrageous comments about rape and how god intended it. he had the lead and lost it. joe donnelly the democrat leading 45-42. then nevada, there the republicans are still leading but berkeley is closing in on dean heller, 2 points behind. even there they're not comfortable. in montana, john tester has retaken the lead 48-46 over dan imr rehberg so the democrats democrats might hold on to that seat and in bibi tammy baldwin with a significant lead over tommy thompson. these days, 3 points is significant and i've seen more polls where she's more comfortable. when you look at all that you go damn! might not only the democrats l
. scott brown did the same thing by the way. can i give a brief hurrah for my senator. that's senator professor warren. >> stephanie: what do you mean by that, willard thought he was a talk show host. >> caller: he started believing all these crazy people. i would point out that if he and scott brown both made the same mistake, the only common factor is eric fernstr oh om. you said romney was a dumber politician than dan quayle and sarah palin combined. >> caller: it's true. if all the stories are true of how stunned he was. i didn't think he was stupid. how does anybody interpret the polls as at least close, there is a possibility that you might loss. >> stephanie: whether you want to talk about blame the storm or chris christie, the president was ahead in all the battleground before that. >> caller: and forever. even after the first debate de debackel, which was allegedly the game changer. >> stephanie: you say how can democrats may republicans pay aside from dissociating myself from the comments. i mean, it's basically how they should deal with this fiscal cliff thing to start with
mean. do they surely prohibit the kind of apartheid policies that were condemned in brown versus board of education. those policies were designed to really stigmatize and put down to treat a second class of the blacks who had before that experienced generations of slavery and subordination. the same thing if they are used to up a racially outcome by bringing folks who have been previously excluded historically from the table, and bringing them to the table. >> now just so it's clear the supreme court has said until very recently there is no problem with using race as a factor in the context of higher education in particular to create a diverse intellectual environment. the question now before the court is will that continue to be the law? >> exactly. ever since the in the late 1970s, so for 35 years the basic idea that race can sometimes be taken into account in order to achieve more diversity in higher education. and especially when this is not being used to stigmatize or subordinate historically disadvantaged groups like african-americans. >> eliot: and justice sandra day o'connor in
is trying to butch it up. good morning. >> caller: good morning, guys. you looked great in that brown skirt in the predebate show. >> oh thank you. we'll be doing an election special on tuesday. >> caller: never lose the brown skirt. this is very puzzling that planned parenthood and [ inaudible ] are staying neutral in the wayne powell race. >> stephanie: huh? >> caller: does that make any sense to you guys? >> stephanie: no. >> caller: how could they not be with wayne? >> stephanie: actually we'll get you an answer because we can shoot julie an email. >> yeah. >> stephanie: i have no clue. and i don't know if that's true but let's find out. >> okay. >> stephanie: let's go to jim in nashville, tennessee. welcome. contract hey, you became my momma, i voted yesterday. it was the last day for early voting in nashville. >> stephanie: hurray. >> caller: kind of all right. i went there as a republican signed into a republican and when i got to the voting booth, i turned into a republican't. and i want to thank you and all of the callers that say the truth on this show, and made me
was able to watch part of her debate with scott brown and she made a lot of sense talking about the economic challenges that face us. i hope that her voice is heard in washington during the lame duck session. her prescription for the economy is what the voters chose. and the lame duck -- our elected officials during the lame duck session, i think should pay attention to that. >> bill: right. you're darn right she did a good job in the debates. why do you think scott brown canceled the last debate? charles is calling from birmingham alabama. what do you say? >> buenos dias senor. >> bill: buenos dias. >> caller: bill, i have not heard a lot of discussion about how the withdrawal from afghanistan might affect the budget negotiations. >> bill: yeah, that raises a very good question, charles. inappreciate hearing from you on this veterans day. the president has talked about that terry. he's said, without maybe -- i haven't heard a specific number but one of the advantages of ending the war in iraq and drawing down
, jerry brown's proposition 30 which is kind of similar to what's been going on here in washington right? he couldn't get anything through the legislature so he went to the people and got his plan passed. >> yes, people in california really got it. they want their children's futures secured. and they're willing to pay a bit more to make sure that our kids have the quality public education that california prides itself on. so it was an uphill battle of course but governor brown took the leadership to really push that prop 30 forward so the people of california have spoken. thank goodness. i hope that members of congress really understand that this is -- it is, bill, very similar to what happened. >> bill: yeah, it was a combination -- he didn't use all of the same rhetoric of president obama, the combination of spending cuts and tax increases and new revenue right? which has got to be the solution. >> absolutely. i think what we have to be careful of is that these cuts are proper cuts that they don't create havoc
and benghazi and obama's losing the election. you know, it is sort of like charlie brown and lucy. how many times do they realize that nothing that they're watching on fox is accurate? i don't think there is a time. i think that's why they watch fox news to be purposely and chronically misinformed. i don't think there's ever going to be an ah-ha moment. there would have been two or three years ago. so it is this very weird -- it is not the normal relationship that news consumers have with the news organization. where they're interested in the truth or maybe you know, a little rose glass view, a little partisan -- to make them feel better. this is just a total alternate universe that they want to live in. >> stephanie: you know what i thought summed it up, one romney supporter, when it was -- the minute it was announced in his -- whatever, headquarters that he lost, this woman just was shocked. she said what? how could anybody have voted for him for president obama. because not everybody watches fox news. that's what i me
elizabeth warren. she has a 50% to 47% edge to defeat scott brown. it's the highest profile senate race in the country. do you think she'll win? >> i do. once she pulled ahead, i don't think these departments are going to back off of her. there's only so much ticket splitting and obama is just roaring out of massachusetts. remember the states that had him as governor are rejecting him. i think that we're going to do very well there. i want to watch for what happens when people talk about elizabeth warren's future, running for president and other things. >> i know. i know whip love it, she hasn't even gotten the office yet and they're already talking about the next one. awesome. >> a race near and dear to both of our hearts, north carolina where democratic byron georgian is stepping down and rick berg is leading at the moment, heidi heitkamp, do you think she can pull it out. >> i do, but it's really close. it's just so much ticket splitting required, because romney's doing so well in that state, but she has run i think the best senate campaign in america. she has done a phenomenal job.
is that kerry gets named secretary of state and scott brown runs for his seat. he is the master of the special election, after all. >> stephanie: he probably can't fit in the pink pads and shorts anyway anymore. >> he is too old to go back to hand modeling, he needs porcelana. >> stephanie: >> stephanie: connie britton in california. >> connie of american horse story and friday night lights? sweet! >> stephanie: i believe in the america he wants for my grandchildren. who said that? >> tom brokaw. >> stephanie: no, that was nancy in michigan. you know her. who said we need for more years of rare to help the middle class achieve a stable economy. who said that? james taylor from north carolina. i know him. he knows something because he's seen fire. >> in his mind, hes going to carolina. >> did he actually go there in his body, too? >> stephanie: apparently. >> ok. >> sharon in arizona you're on the "stephanie miller show." hi. >> caller: hi, stephanie. >> stephanie: hello. >> caller: i wanted to let you know, don't worry about the youth her in arizona. they're out working like mad. i've been wor
rose professor at brown university from providence, row identify land and i would like to welcome hugo switzer and he teaches on gender studies. thank you both for joining us. tricia, i want to start with you. how do you think that--this is a question we've all been asking--how can somebody whose entire career and life was built around an ethical code, honor and integrity how can he breach the trust that he had built and put his entire career at risk? >> well, i mean, there's no question that those are ethical standards to which all humans strife, but rarely reach all the time. so of course this is a very visible flaming demise of his articulating these values. but i think we want to remember that humans are flawed and humans make mistakes, and when you couple that with the ways in which people get intoxicated with power, it's not unable to imagine that some would have these failings. i think we should be more--not make excuses but we should under that that's very likely to happen. >> jennifer: well, so i'm interested in the dynamic on this. hugo, you wrote a very it fascinating piece
and in a very significant victory that was led by jerry brown much to his credit. what will the president offered? has he put numbers on the table that you're aware of that say to the republicans here is a deal you must accept? >> i don't know that he has. i was gratified to hear rich trumka coming out of a meeting with the president. look, what the formulation has got to be is that we end the absurd situation where one out of four profitability corporations pays nothing in federal taxes. we're losing over $100 billion every year because the rich and corporations are putting their money in the cayman islands. we have triple military spending since 1997, spending almost as much as the rest of the world combined. in other words eliot, there are fair ways to do deficit reduction without doing as the republicans want cutting social security which by the way has nothing to do with the deficit. cutting medicare benefits, medicaid benefits or education. >> eliot: look, the ratio that i referenced earlier where last year, the bargain
is harder now that scott brown is not around. >> the first caucus in history in the history of civilized government to have a majority of women and minorities in the caucus. you can applaud that. >> clap, clap, that's my job. msnbc outlines what else to expect. >> one of the first orders of business for congressmen freshman is which iphone to use. >> they can have iphone? no wonder nothing gets done. they're all playing "angry birds." then there is hazing. they must spend five minutes each having a conversation with darrell issa. which is cruel. finally take the time as a freshman think book. who can forget boehner's crazy hat day and i'm with stupid shirt eric cantor wore when he appeared with fellow freshman todd akin. it's all very mr. smith goes to washington made real by the jimmy stewart impersonating michigan mcconnell. >> if you can't human rights from a punch in
an electoral base that is motivated by their issues with brown people, gay people, by their issues of cultural i i implications of women having control over their bodies? >> eliot: i agree. the issue for the republican party is that those issues that motivated them, as you said, were the social issues which lost the election for them. they are no longer the demographics of the electorate, and no longer permit them to get to 50%. either popular vote for electoral college. they peel them off one by one. as they lose them they have no argument to make other than what john boehner sees left to make on taxes. that's what he wants to do. i'm not persuaded that that isn't a losing strategy or epidemic their only possible strategy. >> when the republican party comes around in four years three years we'll see them singing their old songs again but i hope you're right. i hope boehner starts to attack what you perceive as their strength. it will force the democrats to stand up for more traditional what we associate with the democratic party, which is we're going to protector things like social security,
rose, professor from brown university, michael hastings of "buzzfeed" and of "rolling stone." what's up? you know, hillary clinton secretary of state, went to israel today. she cut off that asian sort of farewell tour that she was on but she went there in the hopes that something could be worked out. there are rumors of a truce. there are rumors there is going to be a cease-fire. michael, as you look at what the country's mission is, what's the first thing that resonates with you when you see her on the ground there? >> what the white house has to show is they have an active involvement in this. they're going to broker a deal. this has been a tradition of the u.s. to come in when tensions flare to work something out and hopefully a lasting peace not one that just lasts a couple of years. >> first thing that struck me when i saw that hillary clinton with benjamin netanyahu was it didn't matter that netanyahu backed romney. all of that time wasted, all of that money wasted perhaps. speaking today with netanyahu
